Honda releases electric version of Fit compact

Honda Motor Co. on Aug. 31 began lease sales in Japan of an electric-powered version of its popular Fit compact vehicle.

The new Fit EV has a single-charge mileage of 225 kilometers, one of the world’s best for electric vehicles, Honda officials said.

The model is equipped with Toshiba Corp.’s lithium-ion battery. It has a greater driving range than the Leaf, Nissan Motor Co.’s mass-produced electric vehicle model, although its battery capacity is smaller than the Leaf’s.

The Fit EV has achieved an energy consumption rate of 106 watt-hours per km, one of the most efficient in the world, Honda officials said, better than the 110 watt-hours per km for the i-MiEV, Mitsubishi Motors Corp.’s mass-produced electric vehicle. The energy efficiency corresponds to the fuel efficiency in gas-powered vehicles.

The Fit EV is priced at 4 million yen ($51,000), including tax.

This is Honda’s first release of an electric vehicle model for lease sales in more than 13 years.
